Crock Pot Brand Responds After Major 'This Is Us' Reveal (Spoilers)

A major reveal happened on last night’s This Is Us (and there are spoilers ahead!)

It was discovered that Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) will most likely die from a faulty crock-pot after it accidentally catches fire. In the episode airing after the Super Bowl, the Pearson family wakes up in the middle of the night to find their home in flames and Jack tries to save everyone.

Now, the official Crock Pot Facebook page has been defending the brand on social media amid the backlash from some fans, who love Jack.

“Jack Pearson was our Valentine so we equally understand your pain with his loss. We love him and we love you too. Don’t further add to our heartbreak by no longer using Crock-Pot Slow Cookers, rest assured our products have been generationally tested by your family and friends,” one comment from the brand read.

Responding to another comment, the brand wrote, “We’re heartbroken over last night’s episode too! Ruthie, we’re innocent until proven guilty.”

'This Is Us' Super Bowl Episode Will Answer How Jack Died

The preview for the This Is Us episode airing after the 2018 Super Bowl has been released and it will give you chills, seriously.

Before reading the rest of this post, beware of spoilers from the latest episode!

The one big question that fans of This Is Us have had since the beginning of the series was “how did Jack die?” The mystery surrounding the death of Milo Ventimiglia‘s character has been a constant part of the storyline, but we still haven’t found out all the answers.

Now, “all of your questions will be answered” in the new episode. During the episode that aired on January 23, we saw that Jack turned off a crock pot (gifted to him and Rebecca by their neighbor 17 years earlier), but that it didn’t turn off properly and it lit on fire in the middle of the night.

In the next episode, the Pearson family wakes up in the middle of the night to find their home in flames and Jack tries to save everyone.

Set your DVR to record extra time on Sunday, February 4 in case the big game runs over!

Chrissy Metz Opens Up About Her Character's Loss on 'This Is Us'

SPOILER ALERT – Do not continue reading if you don’t want to know what happened on the mid-season finale of This Is Us.

On Tuesday night’s episode of This Is Us, Chrissy Metz‘s character Kate suffers the devastating loss of her unborn child with her fiance Toby (Chris Sullivan).

After the mid-season finale aired, Chrissy opened up about her character’s loss with Entertainment Weekly.

“We found out the middle of the summer when we had our meeting, and, ooooph, of course I was devastated. More so for the audience, because I think they are rooting for Kate and Toby as a relationship for so many reasons,” Chrissy said. “And that it’s a story line that needs to be addressed on network television – not just because of pregnancy, but because of plus-size pregnancy and it’s an unconventional relationship, they’re not married, they’ve just moved in together.”

Chrissy went on to say that she found this story line challenging because she has never experienced the loss of a child and she wanted to make her character’s pain as pure as possible.

“I did process what it would feel like to go through this alone and feel like nobody would understand you, so I used that in the process of just being really in my own head, or in Kate’s own head about it all, and overanalyzing it and feeling inadequate and just being hormonally a wreck because your body still thinks that you’re pregnant,” Chrissy continued. “So just trying to have empathy for Kate, and this beautiful piece of joy that Toby and her had and then it was taken from her. I just tried to stay authentic in the heartache and also the process of grief because everybody processes grief differently.”

The second half of season two of This Is Us will air in early 2018.

'This Is Us' Removes Kevin Spacey Reference from Upcoming Episode

This Is Us has decided to take out a Kevin Spacey reference from tonight’s episode.

On Tuesday’s episode (October 31), the 58-year-old House of Cards actor was set to be mentioned in a flashback scene where Kevin’s (Justin Hartley) roommate lands a role in a new Spacey film and invites Kevin to the director’s party. That line will not be aired in tonight’s episode.

Spacey is being accused of sexually harassing a then-fourteen year old Anthony Rapp, before releasing public apology where he came out as gay at the same time, which caused outrage on social media.

“In light of recent events, the producers have decided to remove the brief reference to Kevin Spacey,” the show’s production studio 20th Century Fox Television said in a statement on Tuesday.

This Is Us airs on Tuesday nights on NBC.
